Sissyphobia is as irrational as homophobia

A short commentary on sissyphobia (denigration of feminine gay men).
Gay or straight, men are acculturated to suppress, or even despise, our feminine sides. And while football-loving, Budweiser-drinking Macho Marys do exist, I contend that those who denigrate finger-snapping fems do so out of their own fear of being perceived as effeminate. It's a fear as irrational as homophobia itself.
